Our True Passion

The Wawel Polish Folk Dance Group is non-profit performing dance group based in Houston TX. Wawel is dedicated to promoting polish culture through song and dance.

We have three groups: Wawel, Mini Wawel, and Babcia Wawel. These groups consist of high school, college, and graduate students, as well as adults.  The group provides free costumes and no dance experience is necessary. The willingness to have fun and make new friends is what we strive to accomplish!

Join us in celebrating the colorful and rich traditions of Poland!

The Wawel Castle

The name Wawel originates from the Wawel Royal Castle located in Krakow, Poland. This beautiful historic castle is the political and cultural heart of Poland.

Wawel Castle had been the residence of Polish kings for centuries and a site of the most important events in Polish history. It is considered to be the symbol of Polish statehood. The Wawel Castle is also one of Poland’s most beautiful examples of Renaissance

Today it stands tall and mighty as a premier art museum. Over one million visitors tour the Castle’s permanent collections and temporary exhibitions each year. The Castle’s permanent exhibitions recreate the appearance of the royal residence in the Renaissance and Baroque eras.
